Lloyd co-owned H&H Masonry in Sumner; he also worked as an Inspector with Seminole County Schools for ten years. He was always busy with projects and had a strong work ethic.  He loved to work in the yard – he was notorious for perfectly manicured grass, playing with his dogs, and cheering on Alabama football “Roll Tide”!  He met the love of his life, Sylvia Hilburn, in Florida and they were married April 17, 1987.
